We’re Open for dine-in, takeout, and delivery! We like to call it: “Casual Fine Dining with a few COVID inspired changes.” Find out how we’re keeping things clean and safe here.

To get ready for this new phase in our restaurant life, we have cleaned the restaurant from stem to stern and created protocols for our staff that promote a safe work environment. We believe we have created a menu that is delicious, comforting and offers our usual comforting yet excellent, carefully produced food and drinks. 

We have also expanded our outdoor seating on the sidewalk along Biltmore Avenue in front of the restaurant (weather permitting).

We hope to see you soon!

Creative Cuisine & Craft Cocktails

Since 2012 Chestnut has been making a gustatory impression on Downtown Asheville. Located at 48 Biltmore Avenue Chestnut is in close proximity to some of the city’s favorite venues including the Fine Arts Theater, Diana Wortham Theatre, and The Orange Peel.

The Chestnut Story

Consistently creative cuisine — Chestnut offers classics done right with a touch of cutting edge. From house cured meats to perfect mashed potatoes to local steak cooked to a turn to local vegetables fresh from the farmer; it’s not what you do, but how you do it.


Carefully crafted cocktails — Elixirs, Shrubs, Syrups all made in house, combined with freshly squeezed juices, top drawer liquors and our highly skilled bartenders for a one of a kind beverage experience. The wine list isn’t too bad either…
